About the Author:

A former teacher and naturalist, Ron Stob is a travel writer and photographer who has written several books about what to see and do on California's Central Coast. He was a feature writer with a newspaper for 15 years, and has written for national magazines and other newspapers.

Eva Stob was a clinical laboratory technologist and is an active participant in their adventures. Her photos have appeared on the cover of a number of magazines. She was the instigation for the trip and the book and there is little doubt that her hand is on the tiller.

Former residents of California's Central Coast, they now reside along the shores of the Little Tennessee River on Tellico Lake in the hills of East Tennessee.

Editorial Reviews

BoaterFun
It's the story of a middle-aged couple who took a year's leave from the regular world and cruised… a total of 6,300 miles and 145 locks. What sets this book apart is their "potpourri of information" at the end, which includes everything from their itinerary to a cost analysis and a list of valuable resources.
BoatU.S. Magazine
It's the pulling-no-punches sentiments that make Honey, Let's Get a Boat such a good read and a wealth of information.
BookPage
Have you ever wanted to chuck it all - bills, meetings, deadlines, traffic-and try a more rewarding lifestyle? Ron and Eva Stob had the courage to do just that. The Stobs' entertaining and honest account of (their) remarkable trip will leave you laughing, doubting, cheering - and perhaps inspired to try such a journey yourself.

New York Newsday
Out of the Stobs' experiences has come an excellent, national award-winning book called (what else) Honey, Let's Get a Boat.
WARREN BERRY
Power & Motoryacht
Here's the perfect gift book for your friends who always wanted to get a boat. Ron and Eva Stob write honestly and humorously of their nautical ineptitude and the long trail they take to becoming able boaters. Their story is filled with vital travel information, touching and often funny anecdotes, and insightful observations of the brave new cruising world into which they've launched. It's a masterfully written tale that every first-time cruiser would appreciate.
